I’m really hoping someone will put together a real slick #Coetail infographic for colleagues, administrators, and schools to understand what exactly a Coetail graduate brings to the “pedagogy table” at school.
Jeff has one that is more of a testimonial from Coetailers regarding the impact of this kind of Professional Development on them. I’m kind of hoping for an infographic with more detail about what we learned and what our knowledge, pedagogy, and skills-sets are, after graduation.
I don’t draw well, but I enjoyed using Paper by 53 (with the paid add-ons) to doodle out my own version of such an infographic. Technology is the great equalizer. There’s no way I would share something I drew on real paper, but I’m willing to throw caution to the wind and share something I’ve done on digital paper. (I figure the technology makes newbies like me look better and experts worse while we both do the software learning curve 😉 )
I put the Coetail Courses’ Big Ideas (courses 1-4) as coloured rectangular blocks. Underneath them, I put down the subtopics for each course. It wasn’t hard to do. I’m hyper-organized and if you look at the righthand bar where I’ve “organized my musings” (categories), you’ll see the same organizational tree. I’ve organized my blogposts using the same structure. Moreover, you’ll be able to click and read the learning I did for each topic in the blogposts listed there.
Coetail is essentially an community approach to learning so I have to thank Jeff Utecht, his behind-the-scenes wife Daneah; and the entire Coetail community (especially cohort 13-14) for helping me learn and grow so much.
Coetail is not finished yet. We have one more course to go and a final project!… but they’re supposed to be the culmination of all that is on my #doodle– but put into application and practice. So, I think my Doodle is pretty complete…
See you in course 5! (and Happy New Year by the way!)
